Discussion for Luke 12

  • Servant of God
    There is division on earth, as Yeshusa has said he brings to earth, because his message is pure doctrine of the Father. The wedding from which he returns is a union unbreakable with the Father. Few on earth are prepared as represented by one who built greater barns to contain his stuff but was not rich toward God. This very day your Soul is required of you by the Father, blessed be He, always
  • A disciple
    Avigayil; You bring up a very important point; which, unfortunately, is too much neglected in the most elementary teaching of Christians. A parable is a short story that uses familiar events to illustrate a religious or ethical point (Collins Dictionary). Jesus said, "Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God..Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?"
  • Avigayil
    For me, the verses do contain hidden meaning. They are parables. They weren't meant for everyone to understand. The disciples had to have the words you are reading revealed to them. They had to ask Yeshua what they meant. The Word is "living and active"...we need to ask Him to reveal these hidden treasures to us as well. See Jeremiah 33:3, and then 1 Thess 5:1-9. What times and seasons?
  • A disciple
    "Fear not, little flock for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." The last day of the year is here once more and with it the last Chapters of our M'Cheyne's Daily Bible Reading Calendar: 2 Chronicles 36 Revelation 22 Malachi 4 John 21. Each of these Chapters marks a distinct dividing of times, yet nothing that indicates a finality or end altogether. For our God and all His ways are eternal. The things we know and experience feel like they will be this way forever and we can only imagine what might happen if they were changed or gone. But God makes everything perfect and the earth shall in due time be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea and all the world shall praise His wonderful works and terrible doings toward the children of men, when His finished plan is brought completely to light in its perfection. In the meantime, He deals with us with gentleness and pity, little by little bringing about His will in us, and in the world, according to what we can bear, and as the times require judging and having mercy, to keep the wicked from his evil imagination, and letting the righteous grow in grace and knowledge and maturity in the Spirit. Every time has its purpose according to Him that makes all things and proves us by His Word.
  • RSK
    "...for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth." To often we wonder about the millionaires and billionaires in this world and look up to them in awe, but that is not how God looks at us. Seek God first and he will supply all our needs. What a powerful message.
  • Stephen Botts
    Verse 25: "And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?"

    This does not mean adding height. This means that by taking thought, you cannot prolong your life. You can't add one second to your life, so the Lord Jesus warns us to be ready always.
